Splitting off foreign involvement in the Uganda–Tanzania WarEdit

Hello Indy! After reading the comments on the length of the Uganda–Tanzania War in the A-Class review, and witnessing your attempts to trim the article a bit, I had an idea. How about we split off a new article, titled perhaps "Foreign support of Uganda in the Uganda–Tanzania War" (the title is modelled after Foreign support of Finland in the Winter War). As it stands, the involvement of foreign powers on Amin's side sits awkwardly in the "Border clashes and Battle of Mutukula" section, somewhat stopping the text's flow and expanding the already big article. In the new article, we could put all the details and rumours we have found on foreign support, removing most of the excess stuff from the main article (like notes on Zaire and Morocco) and condensing the less notable involvement (for example the in-line stuff about Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and the Soviet Union) into a few sentences, such as "Several foreign actors reportedly also supported Amin, including Saudi Arabia and Pakistan." The new article could also provide space to give more details on the Libyan and PLO involvement. What do you think? Applodion (talk) 21:56, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

@Applodion: I sympathize with your concerns, but I feel that the foreign involvement on Uganda's behalf is still too sparse to warrant its own article. The exception is the Libyan/PLO intervention, which is key to understanding the war (particularly the Libyan actions) and fits right into the main narrative. If we created a seperate article there would be a lot of redundancy in this regard. Of course this could change if we find more about, say, what Pakistan was up to. -Indy beetle (talk) 14:29, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
As a matter of fact, we already know more than what is currently included in the main article. For example, it is not really clear whether the Soviet advisors actually stopped supporting Amin during the war. The Guardian reported in March 1979 that the Soviets still aided the UA. The turn-around of the Soviet stance in regard to Amin seen for example here are also not covered. In Social Disorganisation in Uganda: Before, during, and after Amin (p. 629) it is also stated that the "Soviet Union continued to supply Amin with arms" during the war. Interestingly, this article claims that Soviet and Chinese advisors were seen in the open in Tanzania, supporting the TPDF during the Invasion of Kagera, while noting that the Soviets "arm both Tanzania and Uganda". This article argues that the Soviets offered aid to Amin that was turned down by the Ugandans. There are also details not yet mentioned in the main article which might be noteworthy in regards in the Libyans and PLO: This article mentions that the Libyans were unpopular in Liyba due to their indiscipline, with a least one violent clash between Libyan and Ugandan soldiers taking place in Kampala. In regards to the Pakistanis, this article notes that Libya often used "Pakistani instructors" to support its allies.
Then there are cases of individual weapon salesmen such as Frank Terpil (See here, and here) who provided Amin with equipment until the fall of Kampala. Another case is George Gregary Korkala who also sold weapons to Amin during the war. This article also mentions that at least some East Germans aided Amin until his downfall. This article in German also provides extra information on how badly the Ugandan intervention was received in Libya, where the intelligence service even feared a coup and Libyans covertly protested against Amin's presence with graffiti after the war. It's these kinds of details I would put into an "foreign support" article. Applodion (talk) 15:52, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
@Applodion: Interesting. I am certainly skeptical of some of those articles, but I suppose they do merit some discussion. If you want to lay out an article you have my support, but I can't be of much help right now as I'm feeling ill (currently hoping its not COVID). -Indy beetle (talk) 18:34, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
Oh no! I hope you get better soon! In regards to the article, I will start working on a draft; and the fact that the newspapers contradict each other indeed makes it important to look at them with scrutiny. IMO, that's exactly something which could be done in a seperate article. I will see how much useable information I can collect. Applodion (talk) 22:11, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Irene ZoppiEdit

Now that Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Irene M. Zoppi has closed, I'm hoping you realize that your preachy condescending comment was completely unnecessary. Have a nice day - wolf 19:46, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

@Thewolfchild: Please can the snark, I don't make a habit of running to people's user talk to throw jabs at them over a closed discussion. I apologize for offending you, my intention was not to condescend. My main regret is not at first noticing your clever pun about women generals. I improperly indented my comment, which made it seem I was commenting only on what you said, whereas I meant it to be applied more...generally to all participants in the discussion. I generally feel compelled to remind people that "subject is in undercovered area" should not be respected as a keep argument when I see it, though we can celebrate the happy coincidence when notability is established. The alternative is stuff like this where we have PAID SPA's declaring that if we don't keep their client's article (a Nigerian businessman) we "silence minority voices" and are showing "racial bias" and the like. Or here where we have a long time well-established editor who almost always votes delete instead voting keep on a pet subject of theirs and telling us that a deletion "would just add to the systemic bias excluding articles on things in Africa", which coming from them sounded incredibly dubious. I don't intend to see this become an acceptable practice. -Indy beetle (talk) 20:38, 23 March 2021 (UTC)
Fair enough. You're still welcome to my scotch. - wolf 20:46, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

ApologiesEdit

I should self-trout for reverting your edit based on the edit summary alone, and without looking more closely. I had been deep in the plaktow of trying to massively revise the article, and had been a bit startled to see the changes you made. Anyway, my apologies, I will slow down in the future. Beccaynr (talk) 02:31, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

@Beccaynr: No harm done, I could've handled myself better too. Your concerns were legitimate, and your phrasing has indeed reduced COPYVIO concerns. -Indy beetle (talk) 02:38, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
Cheers, and for whatever it's worth, I've been doing the frequent citation thing because I'm preparing the article for ARS, because some members have Newspapers.com subscriptions, and I plan to ask them to try to fill in the article with additional references, so it's both a habit from how I initially build out articles and an attempt to keep track of where information is sourced from, and in this instance, with a hope that more citations and information will be added.

Katangese ranksEdit

You seem like a person in the know! Do you have any sources for the rank structure/insignia for the Katangese Gendarmerie? I would like to make a rank page for it but I'm struggling finding sources.

Lankyant (talk) 22:31, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

@Lankyant: That will be difficult to find. When it was created the gendarmerie based its organization almost entirely off of the former-Force Publique regulations, so the rank structure is probably very similar. Contrary to what you may expect, The Katangese Gendarmes And War in Central Africa by Erik Kennes and Miles Larmer does not have information of this sort. If I were you, I'd look into some of Helion and Company's Africa@War series books here. In my experience they're more likely to include something like that. You're best bets are probably Congo Unravelled: Military Operations from Independence to the Mercenary Revolt 1960-68 by Andrew Hudson or Ripe For Rebellion : Political and Military Insurgency in the Congo, 1946-1964 by Stephen Rookes. -Indy beetle (talk) 23:51, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
Cheers boss, I will. I've managed to garner a few things through going through Gendarmerie related photos and I had assumed it would have been based on the Force Publique but it's a shame because it's clear it has its own insignia but it's scattered all over the place.

But thanks for the pointers I'll have a look.

K.A.S. Raja - why reverted?Edit

Hello Indy Beetle,

I am sorry but I don't understand your reason for reverting:

can we discuss these sources? Seems to be archival material

The Indian Army List is, and was, an official publication of the Indian Department of Defence, most often issued as a quarterly but it did very over time. My entry added a lot more clarity to this contribution - why undo it?

Yours sincerely,

NWFrontier

Hey @NWFrontier:, sorry if my revert was brusk. The information you provided was good, but the citation you gave, "see Jan 1941, Oct 1941, July 1942, April 1943, Oct 1946 Indian Army List's", was incredibly vague. I would very much like to have your information included on the Raja article, but we need more specifics on the sources. For example, if you could provide page numbers for the army lists and break it down so we know which month issue of the list is supporting which part of this information. -Indy beetle (talk) 20:41, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

Portugal and the HolocaustEdit

Hi Indy beetle, I've made some edits to the above article to try to clarify the periodisation (the Holocaust is generally accepted to refer to the period after 1942 only) and wondered if you might be able to let me know your thoughts on the article? It is somewhat unbalanced by another user's addition of a great deal of dubious material on Portuguese beneficence towards refugees, many of whom were not even Jewish, but can still be pushed into a usable article I think. —Brigade Piron (talk) 17:30, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

@Brigade Piron: Thank you for taking the time to do cleanup on that article. The point about Gibraltar was rather insightful, as that was definitely more a case of war refugees in general than Jews fleeing Nazi persecution. My main problem with the article is that at times it takes on an argumentative tone, such as: Until 1938, Portugal was in the sidelines of the problem of Jewish refugees wishing to flee persecution by Nazi Germany, and that explains why Portugal was not even invited to participate in the Évian Conference. The editor who constructed much of this article seemed to have a RIGHTGREATWRONGS attitude geared towards defending Salazar, and here essentially argues that Portugal should be forgiven for not doing more to help the Jews because Jewish refugees was not a foreseeable problem. Those arguments belong in an "Analysis" section or something, but not imbedded in the gernal text without in-text attribution at the least. -Indy beetle (talk) 03:32, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
@Indy beetle:, thanks for this. There are a number of users who have done some very impressive work on raising the tone on Holocaust and Nazi German articles and this is me attempting to do my bit, even if it is a bit of a sidetrack from Central Africa! Yes, I agree entirely and think some of the content on the user's talk page makes it hard to assume otherwise. I'd be very grateful if you could keep the page on your watchlist. Thanks! —Brigade Piron (talk) 15:25, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

Edit warring in William Winter (politician)Edit

  Hello, I noticed your recent edits at William Winter (politician), and just want to remind you of WP:DNB and WP:3RR. Even if the other editor was being belligerent, it would be best to revert and leave a message on their talk page (so they can eventually be reported to WP:AIV if necessary) than to argue in the edit summaries. Edit warring, even by an experienced editor, can sometimes come across as unprofessional. I hope this doesn't come across as rude, as you are clearly an experienced editor and this was simply a small mistake. Thanks and have a good day. Bass77talkcontribs 00:52, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

1960 Belgian Congo general election infobox updateEdit

Hi, I noticed you reverted my change to the infobox about including who was elected/chosen as Prime Minister following the election. In terms of formatting, I don't have a preference, but as currently coded the information doesn't even appear on the page; you need to include the title of the office in the infobox. That was my only intent with the edit, everything else looks good, so if you could please just add the modifier so the info actually appears, that would be great. Thank you Kairom13 (talk) 03:08, 22 September 2021 (UTC)
